3. 1838-O ‘No Stars’ Half Dime in AU-53

On April 23, 2020, Heritage sold a PCGS-graded AU-58 (fifty-eight) 1838-O ‘No Stars’ half dime without a CAC sticker for $6,000. A CAC-approved AU-53 coin thus brought much more than a non-CAC, PCGS-graded AU-58 (fifty-eight) 1838-O half dime. While market levels for these have increased a little from April 2020 to July 2022, this increase could not account for a large part of the premium paid for this CAC-approved half dime.
